This classic book is the engineer's choice for reliable information on how to fabricate, purchase, test, and inspect pressure vessels that meet ASME code specifications. The seventh edition clearly explains how to meet performance goals and current code requirements in the most cost effective manner possible. The 1991 Department of Transportation standards for cargo tanks - which can now be built and repaired only by ASME certified manufacturers - are reported and interpreted. Procedures for becoming ASME certified are also described. This clear, straightforward guide illustrates how the code applies to each vessel component, and includes tables for calculating allowable internal pressures. Procedures for complying with ASME standards are spelled out on safety procedures for design and maintenance; inspection and quality control; welding procedures and tests; operator qualifications; non-destructive testing; fabrication and installation; and requirements for pressure vessels used in nuclear power plants.
